At TakeAction Minnesota, we strive to use all the best tools for organizing and building power that we can find. We utilize a range of methodologies that draw from community organizing, electoral campaigns, organizing for racial justice, communications and changing the terms of the public debate.
Please continue to check this page for information on upcoming trainings.
Please note that few trainings are wholly “in one category”. There may be elements of personal transformation, skill-building, and information in every training we do. Most trainings emphasize one approach more than another.
Trainers for TakeAction Trainings draw from TakeAction’s experienced organizing staff, as well as local and national leaders. What we can promise is that no one will be training you solely from an “outline”. People leading trainings have had experience, often years of experience, in the topic they are presenting. They have wrestled with the same questions they will be asking you. They have lots of experience to share about what has worked and what hasn’t -- just like you. Trainings strive to be interactive, so that you get to share your experience as well.
Because we use and train on the most effective methodologies that we know of, the TakeAction training curriculum owes a debt of gratitude to many others in the progressive movement. Our curriculum is based on the very good organizing and training work of these organizations, among others:
